As we continue to move through these changes, we ask that all OSSC players respect decisions made by our facility partners, who have had to navigate through difficult decisions. You don't have to agree, but you can be kind. Any form of harassment or disrepect towards any staff member, whether that is of OSSC or a facility, will not be tolerated. 
 

These procedures are subject to change and we will inform players in the event that it has modified. All information is also posted on our COVID-19 page.
